New signs on Interstate 35 provide travel time information

Seven new digital signs have been installed along the Interstate 35 corridor between Hinckley and Duluth. The signs display estimated travel times between several locations.

The signs display real–time travel information and will be used until the end of the 2012 construction season.

“The purpose of this project is to inform the traveling public of the travel times through three major reconstruction projects on I-35 this summer,” said Dave Mavec, project engineer.

Mavec said the intent is to reduce driver frustration by displaying the actual driving time it takes to drive through the corridor.

Highway 23 travel times are displayed to encourage Highway 23 as an alternate route.
